You might have noticed it’s been a *little* while since we blogged here at WhoDoYou. For the most part we’ve been busy helping connect people with trusted local businesses. We’ll have more to say on that in subsequent blog posts. But today I’m happy to share that WhoDoYou and Web.com have teamed up to offer small businesses in the UK a free Digital Health Check, and a £50 voucher to spend on any Web.com services. You can read more about the specific in our press release.
I am particularly gratified to make this public because we think the opportunity is so good for small businesses. In essence, each business owner must think about his or her online footprint at all times. No longer can a small business ignore the fact that more than half of all online searches are done on mobile, and that over 87% of people expect to read reviews on businesses they contact.
It is for that exact reason that a combined approach makes so much sense. WhoDoYou can provide extraordinarily valuable content in the form of trusted reviews and recommendations from social media. At the same time, Web.com can provide a custom consultation to help each small business leverage their social recommendations, and multiply their impact through optimizing websites, social media presence and more. Read more about the offer, and see what Web.com have to say:
“We’re delighted to be partnering with WhoDoYou to offer free Digital Health checks to their local business customers,” says Alastair Thornton, UK Country Manager of Web.com. “We are finding more and more local businesses needing help with the complex world of local online marketing, and by working with WhoDoYou we are able to provide a quick and easy solution, plus discounts on key services for those businesses who take up the offer.”
We ran an initial pilot last month – in December 2016 – and received terrific feedback. As a result, we are rolling out the program country-wide (in the UK) this January, and will consider other geographies in the near future.
